Lins Honeyman of Cross Rhythms Music and Life radio:

NEWS: Lins Honeyman - Interview
Lins Honeyman of Cross Rhythms quizzed singer, songwriter and pianist Jim Radford
The music scene populated by Christians has a healthy tradition of so-called late starters with the likes of soul singer Naomi Shelton and bluesman Leo 'Bud' Welch both making their recording debuts in their autumn years despite decades of music making away from recording studios. Add to that list Scottsville, Virginia-based singer/songwriter and pianist Jim Radford - not to be confused with his British folk singer and peace campaigner namesake - who, since 2013, has released three albums chock full of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs which stylistically reflect the man's lifelong love of jazz, blues, country and anything else that takes his fancy.
